Lift Up Your Hearts – Georgia
Elevating the desires of the "too-easily-pleased"
October 20
- October 21, 2023
Powder Springs,
Midway Covenant Christian School

CS Lewis said we are too easily satisfied, “like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”

What could he possibly mean? Should we be greedy? Or might even greed be nothing more than a vice of the too easily satisfied?

Human desires are a strange thing. For millenia, educators thought it was their primary duty to raise their students’ hearts from “mud pies in a slum” to “a holiday at the sea.”

Are we starving our children just when we should be lifting up their hearts? Might that help explain their desperate greed for pleasure and their astonishing eagerness to learn moderation? Or is this even the role of the educator (at home or school)?

Contemplate with us how to elevate the desires of your children to hopes that don’t disappoint and to joys that don’t leave a bitter taste.

Registration includes lunch on both days and free audio recordings of all the conference sessions.
Coffee, Tea, and Water will provided throughout the day.
